For the Movie

American Sniper

If you are doing Date Night:

American Sniper is an amazingly told true story of one of America's soldiers. This movie will keep you enthralled until the very end! This is a great pick for once the kids are in bed, or for when they are away for the evening.

Inside Out

If you are doing Family Night:

Disney-Pixar's INSIDE OUT takes a rollicking journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley's mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.

    Friday night..family night is a great idea. Sometimes we would throw in a board game too.

      That post is this Friday 😉
      There are 2 Dinner & a Movie posts and 2 Family Game Nights (with a snack recipe) posts each month! It’s a new thing I am trying out on here to see what my readers think. I am kind of excited about it.

    I really enjoyed Inside Out. I thought it was so creative and fun. Your meal looks amazing as well. I love seafood, although I’ve actually never tried grouper. It looks delish!

  • ssjmommy

    This recipe sounds delicious and looks so festive! I want to try this one. Thank you! I love American Sniper. I still haven’t seen Inside-Out but it sounds cute. Amazon Prime is the best thing we ever did! I love the 2 day shipping and the movies and shows you can watch are limitless and outstanding! I would recommend it highly to everyone.

      The recipe IS delicious! And both movies are really good. They have Prime this weekend for only $73! I am doing a post in a bit to let people know they can get it for a discount. We love the shipping and the movies, I don’t really watch too many tv series on it, but I do get books and everything else possible!! 🙂

    One of my fav things to eat is grouper. I love it blackened. Sniper was a great movie. I surely takes a special person to be in Special Opps. God Bless his family

      I like flounder the best, but grouper is my second favorite. This recipe was really good so I chose it for my first dinner and a movie post. The whole family likes it here, I figured others could give it a try as well.
